Published 1929


A early talkie from Pathé, this crime drama starred relative newcomers Robert Armstrong and a very young Carole Lombard, the title credits still spelling her first name Carol.
They play husband and wife, she threatening divorce unless he devotes more of his time to their marriage. In reality, Armstrong is an undercover detective busy investigating a dope ring lead by Reno (Sam Hardy), a crook with friends in high places.
When Armstrong gets too close to the truth, Reno has him framed in the murder of corrupt newspaper publisher Addison (Charles Sellon).


Run time 66 min.

Production Company Pathé Exchange

This one moves along nicely. Watch for a quick appearance by George "Gabby" Hayes at 4:20 into the movie, and again near the end in the background.
